Universal Studios will celebrate the 35th anniversary of the original Ghostbusters at Halloween Horror Nights this year, with mazes featuring the classic supernatural comedy in both Hollywood and Orlando.
From Universal's press release:
In each maze, guests will follow in the footsteps of the Ghostbusters – Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston – as they venture through artfully recreated scenes from the film, including the firehouse, New York Public Library and the Temple of Gozer, as an army of ghoulish spirits, hideous specters and ectoplasm-dripping phantasms attack from every corner. As they delve deeper into the maze, guests will come face-to-face with an array of paranormal creatures, from the voracious Slimer to the all-powerful Gozer the Gozerian and in its ultimate destructor form – the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
And here's the hype video:
This isn't Ghostbusters' first appearance at Universal, of course. The film was featured in the Ghostbusters Spooktacular show at Universal Studios Florida from the park's 1990 opening through 1996. (That was replaced by Twister - Ride It Out and now is the site of the Jimmy Fallon ride.)
And Ghostbusters also features in Stranger Things' season 2, which will be featured in another maze on both coasts. With Stranger Things and Ghostbusters as the leading IP this year, Orlando will be continuing the overall 1980s theme that it featured last year.
Ghostbusters is the sixth announced house for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida, which starts September 6.
In Hollywood, Halloween Horror Nights kicks off with a preview night on September 12 before an official start on Friday the 13th. USH has announced Stranger Things, Ghostbusters, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man and Holidayz in Hell as its mazes so far, in addition to its year-round The Walking Dead maze.Tweet
